The Windham Eagle student of the week is Oliver Backman, seventh grader from Jordan-Small Middle School. His favorite subject is math and when he grows up he’d like to be an engineer for NASA.
“Mrs. Hackett had this to say about Oliver: ‘Oliver is creative, talented, and focused in art. He is always challenging himself and works diligently until he is proud of his completed piece of art. Oliver is always willing and eager to help others in the art room.’”
“Mrs. Riley added that Ollie is always looking to do his very best in class. When presented with challenges, he rises to the occasion. Ollie is kind and respectful to his classmates and teachers.”
Oliver feels that “Education is important because all the jobs I want to be involve education. I like school because it gives me something to do for 8 hours,” he said. Oliver also likes to work on the computer and play sports.
Oliver is the son of Lisa and Jim. He has a brother, Walter, and a pet named Colt.
